WASHINGTON - Associate Athletics Director for Business and Finance/Senior Woman Administrator Sharon Brummell has been appointed to the NCAA Minority Opportunity and Interests Committee. Brummell will be a part of the 15-member committee.

Brummell, who has spent two years on the Hilltop, after spending over 20 years at University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, has been a strong advocate for women and ethnic minorities in college athletics, having recently helped three members of the Georgetown University athletics staff earn BIG EAST SWA Grants for professional development purposes.

"I am honored to be selected as a member of the NCAA Minority Opportunity and Interest Committee," Brummell said. "Anytime that you are in a position to help the under-represented, you can create opportunities that may not exist otherwise. My goal is to help increase equity and opportunities for all student athletes and to increase opportunities for ethnic minorities in the athletics profession."

With the appointment, Brummell will be responsible for upholding the mission of the NCAA Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee, increasing opportunities for ethnic minorities in intercollegiate athletics, with a primary focus on the education and welfare of the ethnic minority student-athlete. The committee also oversees the enhancement of opportunities for ethnic minorities in coaching, athletics administration, officiating and within the NCAA governance structure.

The committee was established in 1991 to enhance the NCAA commitment to foster racial equality and diversity in collegiate athletics. The Committee is made up of 15-members, six from Division I schools, three from Division II schools and three from Division III schools. One student-athlete from each division also serves on the committee.
